Big Bash League, 2018 | Melbourne Renegades vs Melbourne Star, 16th Match | MLR vs MLS Who Will Win

Next up in Big Bash League is the battle between Melbourne Stars and Melbourne Renegades who will be played at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground.

Renegades have been soaring high with 2 wins and a solitary loss from 3 games and are placed 2nd on the points table. Having won their opening game comprehensively by 4 wickets against Perth Scorchers followed by a win over the reigning champions Adelaide Strikers by 5 wickets.

Their only loss came in their last match where they squared against Sydney Sixers and lost the match by 33 runs. It was a ridiculous failure in the batting unit which saw them being bundled out for 99 while chasing 132 runs.

Meanwhile, Stars haven’t had the start they desired as their only win of the competition came in the last match after they rattled Sydney Sixers by 5 wickets.

Making a comeback into the Stars line-up after being axed from the Boxing day Test against India, Peter Handscomb blazed his way with 70 runs in just 35 balls which helped his side to achieve the target in 14.5 overs.
